:: AusIMM President, Alice Clark, Appointed to Academic Post
“Alice Clark has extensive experience initially in exploration geology and then via a number of mine geology and mine planning operational roles at Mount Isa Mines (now Xstrata), culminating in Chief Geologist - Mount Isa Operations," Prof Gault said. “She has operated her own consulting business since 2002, namely CdeK Geological & Mining Services, and has a full appreciation of the requirement for an integrated approach to geology, mine planning and metallurgy. She has a BSc (Geology) and an MSc (Economic Geology) from James Cook University in Townsville. ”I believe that Alice Clark will add significantly to UQ’s reputation in minerals-related research and she will be a significant asset in enhancing our geometallurgy credentials, in collaboration with JKTech and other Centres of the Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI)," Prof Gault said.
Prof Clark was elected President of The AusIMM for 2011 and is serving a second term in 2012. She is also Deputy Chair of the Joint Ore Reserves Committee (JORC) and a member of the Queensland Exploration Council, and was appointed a Queensland Resource Industry Ambassador by the Queensland Government.
Following her appointment, Prof Clark said she was looking forward to the challenges of working with leading researchers and industry professionals. “Geometallurgy integrates geosciences, mine planning and minerals processing research in a drive to discover innovative approaches to optimisation and sustainability in the mining business. “I believe the experience I have gained through roles with The AusIMM and other industry and government bodies has given me a broad appreciation of the role the minerals industry plays in the community. This experience complements the strategic aims of the JKMRC, SMI and the UQ," Prof Clark said.
